Johnstone reflects on ‘frustrating’ draw

SAM Johnstone says Albion must put Friday’s “frustrating” trip to Birmingham City behind them and turn their attention to Tuesday.

The Baggies No.1 earned Darren Moore's men a point at the St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium with his first-half save to deny Jota from the penalty spot.  

But Sam insists his team-mates should now fully focus on the midweek encounter with Bristol City at The Hawthorns. 

“It was frustrating really and we know we’re better than that,” admitted Johnstone.

“We were a little bit sloppy but ultimately we didn’t lose the game. 

“Both teams had chances and it was an okay game of football. 

“It feels a little bit like a loss because we weren’t as good as we’re capable of.

“Fortunately for me I was able to save the penalty and it helped us get a point. 

“A second goal at that point would have really knocked us at that point in the game.”
